Of veils and rings...Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue
"Something old" symbolizes continuity with the bride's family and the past. "Something new" means optimism and hope for the bride's new life ahead. "Something borrowed" is usually an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride. The borrowed item also reminds the bride that she can depend on her friends and family. "Something blue" is the symbol of faithfulness and loyalty.
A tradition worthwhile carrying on...as you read many things out there...friends get taken forgranted as the wedding band is slipped onto the finger.
Because as we all know...the wedding day is about them...not you.
So, a bridemaid's job is as many say the most challenging ever...
1. Bridal magazine galore
2. Venue seeking and emailing and contacting
3. Bridesmaid's dress
4. Wax, pluck, hair do and dress up the day before
5. Make-up and early morning
6. Driver to family and friends while trying not to ram into another car manuvering the uncomfortable dress
7. At the receiving end of snapping and angry remarks
8. Running after a large dress
But it doesn't end there...
There is the holding the dress up to help her pee.....and even helping her dress in the morning and seeing things you just don't want to see at 7am in the morning.
Things no one else sees and no one else realises. A job much more than its mere description.
However, you see your friend's best day and get a nice little thank you card.
Ever felt so loved? You answer that for me.....
